"Rather a good dynamic has been recorded..."

Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claims about stability of systematic measures aimed at reduction of arrears on salary.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, she said this to a government’s session on Wednesday.

“We have recorded a systematic and stable reduction of arrears on salary. Rather a good dynamic has been recorded in all economically active state-owned enterprises”, Yulia Tymoshenko noted.

According to her, the level of arrears on salary in the state sector reduced by 32.5% since the beginning of April, and at private enterprises – by 26.5%. Yulia Tymoshenko stressed that this dynamics is a result of effective joint measures undertaken by the Ukrainian government and the Prosecutor’s General Office of Ukraine.

“It indicates that we, step by step, very difficultly, under very complicated conditions, are “recovering” from the influence of the world financial crisis. We have noticed this on many parameters, but, at the same time, I should not be too optimistic about it, because the world crisis is looming and keeps on swallowing new and new countries. The fact that we see the situation improving indicates that the anti-crisis measures of government bring result”, Yulia Tymoshenko believes.
